Released By: Brenda Gainey, PIO

Location: Briceland

Humboldt County Sheriff’s Investigators are asking the public for help in the homicide investigation of Sean Thomas-Butler Akselsen. Akselsen’s body was found near Briceland on Monday, the victim of a single gunshot wound.
Sheriff’s investigators are looking for three African-American adult males. All three men are in their twenties, with shaved heads, and of average build (5’8”-5’10”, 180 pounds). They were last seen in the Redway/Garberville area of Southern Humboldt on the weekend of August 23/24, 2003. They are believed to be driving a late 1980’s dark forest green Chevy Camaro (it may look black to some). The car is in excellent condition with tinted windows and chrome rims.

These men are considered people of interest in the case and Sheriff’s investigators would like to talk with them.

Anyone with information about these individuals or the case should call the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office at
(707) 445-7251.
